Behr, Part 5: Alphas.

In 2011, Ira Steven Behr returned to the science fiction genre with Alphas. The series followed a group of super-powered mutants who helped the government solve crimes while coping with their unique abilities. 

This week, Max and Mike are joined by their Commentary Track Stars: Off Topic co-host Branden Myers to take a look at Behr's sixth show. We discuss the similarities to The X-Men, how the tone differs from other SyFy Channel shows, and the Behr-less second season. We also touch on Ronald D. Moore's recent Twitter activity, and the passing of Trek producer Marty Hornstein.
